A game for Demon Slayer fans

Guardians of the Night -Kimetsu no Yaiba- The Chronicles of Hinokami has left us somewhat divided “, we say in our analysis. “On the one hand, we have an overly simple and limited fighting game with a bleak character roster, while on the other hand it offers us one of the best recreations we’ve ever seen of the history of a manga. To be honest, hwe enjoyed so much reliving the first steps of Tanjiro’s journey with this adventure that we believe that only for the audiovisual show it offers and the possibility of experiencing in our own flesh its best battles and its multiple moments, it is already worth its purchase. On the other hand, if what you are looking for is a fighting title with a minimum of depth and good content to dedicate hours to, perhaps it is better that you look elsewhere “.

In the next weeks and months receive free updates with more playable characters, all of them demons.
